People gathered around Ralph 
using his fingers ?!? 

Well, to make a long, painful story short, Ralph just didn't have it that day. He couldn't 
do it. i felt real bad for him; 7 mean, here was a truly tortured artist at work. But \* u 
consolation could you really offer the guy ? "I'm sure you'll puke again, someday"? This 
was getting too absurd! The show was falling apart. The generator wasn't fixed 
buttcrack mocked a drunk and impatient crowd. 

We looked for an outdoor outlet at the park, but couldn't find any. Then, we were 
approached by a mysterious, old, white-haired, Cuban guy, who spoke little English, but merely 
took our extension cord, walked into the park office, and plugged us in! We were saved! 
The SHAFFERS started playing again, and the crowd danced like hell. Dust rose, and beer 
spilled, and spit flew. The show was going great, but when THE CRUMBS were about to pla , a 
young guy in a park department shirt came running up, frantically, saving we had to st 
He said Che old, white-haired guy didn't actually work for the park, and that he just hung out 
there. We didu t have a permit, so we could use the park, but not the power... 

Thinking quick, Tom from Ft. Lauderdale, who had somehow managed to attend the show, while 
being on house arrest, stepped forward and peeled a crisp, new 20 dollar bill out of his 
wallet. Are you sure we can't just use it a little ?" he asked. 

The park kid smiled and took the 20! "Like, I said, you can only use the power for two 
more hours, til 1 get off..." he corrected himself. He was a corrupt, park department 
worker. 01 course, as a Miami citizen, 1 am shocked and outraged at this corruption at all 
-eveis oi city government, but, the show must go on! 

THE CRUMBS played, and then, before AGAINST ALL AUTHORITY could plav, the cops showed up. 
Technically, we were all legal, but would the actual law stop the man from trying to bust our 
music rhe cops talked to the park kid, and... he stayed bought! He told them we were fully 
allowed to be there, with permission from Rivas, and the cops split in 5 minutes! Yo! AAA 
ol course, wrote an anti-cop song about it right there or, the spot. Just kidding. ""^ '

which Loosely translates as " I love you. If you don't love me, I'll kill vour dog!" And the 
gang kids started laughing at us instead. The rest of the show went fine, everyone got drunk as

LAST SUMMER, I took a vacation to New York City to visit my pal. Little 
; Mike Brad and I jumped trains to get there from Miami We were in a hurry to 
make a deadline, because we wanted to get there in time for THE DICKIES show 
We made it and it was such a great show 1 While I was in New York, I stayed 
at Mike's, but he had to work alot He had a job as a dogwaiker One of the 
dogs he walked was Phil Donahue's Mike said it ate its own shit 1 

Anyway, while Mike was at work, I walked all over the city, or 

hopped the subway, everyday. 1 only had to pay for the subway like 
once, or twice, the whole time I was there* In different parts of town 
I started collecting drug baggies that I found on the ground I got realK 
into it and 1 even convinced Mike to start finding and saving them for me 
to when he was out walking Phil's dog There was a bunch of different 
decorations on them It got so that when i was hanging out with Brad and 
Mike. I'd be paying more attention to looking down and searching the 
streets' I was addicted the drug hagj*ks' ' ! One night, we ran into 
Iggy Pop eating dinner with his girlfriend at some outdoor cafe' But. 
I was still more interested in my baggies 

Well, I found baggies of all different patterns and colors 
They were beautiful' They were realK found everywhere, all 
over town, but there were more, it seemed, around Central Park 

I never did find the "gun print" baggie I heard about, or the 
one with the "kissing lips" on it that Mike told me about, and, 
soon, it was time to leave New York, but I'm still collecting them 
and, hopefully, I'll find them one day In Miami, that shouldn't 
be TOO hard'

So. I moved to Ft. looderdale many moons ago because, like, as everybody knows, FT. 
who doubt it and insist that "yourtown. U.S.A." is THE place to party it down, I believe I need 
only reference the 1962 film "Where the boys are" and it's numerous offspring; just about 
every low budget film that came out in the early to mid eighties which bore the moniker 
"spring break" somewhere in it's title. 'Nuff said, jack. Anyhoo, besides being the (unfortu- 
nately for this party animal, former) spring break capi-_ 
tat of the world, and boasting 

the most tiki-styled bars per 
capita in entire dammned 
United States. Ft. Lauderdool 
bears another claim to fame! A 
Although I'm not sure how we 
rate * per capita" against a city 
where mustaches are REALLY 
king, like, lessee, San Francisco, 
fer example, Ft. Lauderdale's got 
a peck of 'em.. .the main differ- 
ence betweenst the "Ft. 
Lauderdale Moustache" and 

Fig. A Me before; peppy, sassy, 
new wave, antisocial, but happy 

Fig.B Me after. Surly.Figity.Not afraid to use 
Tne word "muff" in normal conversation 

anywhere else though. is it's connotation., to have a "lip buddy" in Ft. Lauderdale means one of three things: 
1.1 really like the guy from QUEEN who kicked it and am trying to carry on his memory.Bo Rhap Forever!" 
2. "I'm underage and trying to fool the 7-1 1 clerk into selling me a six pack of red dog" or 3.1 am a Fort 
Lauderdale guy... I came here on spring break 20 years ago, and never left. I like Jimmy Buffet and can tell 
the difference between a Snook and a Marlin. I drink miller high life exclusively and can tell you the location 
of every clandestine after-hours cocaine bar in the pompano area". Since I've already grown a moustache 
for reasons 1 and 2. Mr. Iggy Scam convinced me that it would be "a good thing" to grow a moustache and 
go undercover the infiltrate the world of #3: The Ft. Lauderdale Guy. It is never a "good thing" to grow a 
moustache, kids. Ask any cop. And anyhoo, I really don't think that Ft. Lauderdale, or even it's surrounding 
county of Broward has any more mustaches than does Iggy's HQ of Dade county... but then again, truth or 
factual accounting don't make for good 'zine writing. ..hum. ."creative embellishment" does. Ho ho! So, all in 
the name of "A funny article for SCAM" I got on down to business... I had my roommates hide my razors 
from me with the agreement that they would not give them back until I resembled Tom Selleck or a reason- 
able facsimile thereof. To begin, I started growing the "Generation x-style goatee" thmgee around my mouth, 
so I would at least be able to go to the punk rock show and not be mistaken for a narc. Once my face was 
heavy with the fruit of my hyperactive teststostorone-producing glands, I trimmed and tapered 
until. ..wahla, .the pride of all leathermen and cops. ..the lip worm! Ech! Ok. so now i gots a moustache. I 
gets an "I eat it raw at the Half Shell Raw Bar" tshirt. I listened to "maragitaville" ten times in a row. and I 
even went on down to a construction sight to get the ambiance goin' and my mojo workin". Wahoo! bring on 
the hot tubs and hawaiian shirts! I am Mister Fort Lauderdale! Hell yeah! Ok. so the first place I decided to 
go to show off my new facial disgrace was,. .where else, einstein? A1A-BEACHFRONT AVENUE' And 
home of the world famous parrothead lounge! For those of you not in "the know". The "worfd famous 
Parrothead Lounge" is "a little out of the way place" on "the world famous Ft. Lauderdale strip" (as the sign 
above the door reads) featuring "Ft. Lauderdale's most atomic 10 cent chicken wings". Egad! What could be 
more a home away from home for a "Ft. Lauderdale guy" like me? I Bellied my newly moustachio'd self up 
to the bar. sure that the bartender would immediately take a liking to the clever tshirt I had chosen to 
wear(see fig. B). the color of which really accented the auburn highlights in my new facial hair. Hot Dawg! I 
ordered a Hot Dawg! Sorry. I just put that in there 'cause it rhymed. ..actually I summoned the barkeep thus- 
ly "My good man!" I exclaimed "I will have one of your finest top shelf Strawberry Margaritas whilst you spin 
me tales of baiting crab traps and all-night booze fueled fishing jaunts at the Pompano Pier." Hmmmm... I 
didn't expect this. Absolute silence. ...the barguy stared right through me. ..was it disbelief 9 disgust 9 was he 
jealous of my moustache? And then it hit me! The bottle thrown at my head from the other side of the bar' 
No. I'm just kidding. Actually what hit my was the realization that the barguy had a nose ring and was wear- 
ing a Jane's Addiction T-shirt. Land Sakes! This guy was 100% Gen-X! He weren't a "Parrothead at all!" 
What gives? Dejected, and actually pretty embarrassed that I had actually let Iggy talk me into growing this 
stupid thing. I sat in the corner of the bar. sucked down my weak and watery margarita and left post haste. 
"Where are the real parrotheads?" I asked myself as I walked down the beachfront. ..indeed' where was the 
"Moustache Nation" I'd heard so much about? With my Moustache-sense pushing me at 1 10V I continued 
onward, searching for a fellow fur face. The only other people I saw bearing the 'stash were a couple of 
cops hangin' out at the Waffle House, and some short waffle-eyed woman who nearly bore down on me. 
astride her runaway 3-wheeled beach cruiser. Then... whatzit?!?... like an Oasis in the desert. .like a candy 
cane to a hypoglycemic. .like. .like. ..urn. a bottle of any kind of alcoholic beverage to my roomates. .there 
it was. ..yes' waaah! the "WORLD FAMOUS ELBO ROOM as featured in 'Where The Boys Are'". Surely this 
would be the Moustache homeland. A REAL Ft. Lauderdale Guy bar! As I sauntered in, I immediately 
noticed the "Moustache friendly" atmosphere. There was a "moustaches only" water fountain. Bathrooms 
labeled "Men", "Woman", and "Moustache",.. yep.. .uh huh. ..well, actually, there was some crappy cover band 
hammering out a pretty rotton cover of "Smells like teen spirit" whilst a room fulla 20-somethmg year old's 
danced in iridescent shirts. Yep, the whole moustache idea was pretty much a flop. ..and in the HEART of Ft. 
Lauderdale, no less. Sheesh. So I went home, dejected, to shave and listen to Motorhead. Fini.

Have you ever said that phrase to any one? The first time I noticed 
someone saying that, it was gay scenes ters saying it to gay punks. My 
roommate Tom used to complain about how he, though very gay with his 
pink triangle pins and public display of boyfriend, would get hissed 
at and sneered at in the Castro, because he was too punk. He told me, 
too, that there was a well-defined schism between the "straight- 
acting, straight-looking" people and the drag queens and queer punks, 
to where there would be opining in the written organs of the scene, 
and accusations back and forth. The straight-actings would use the 
above phrase, and the more flamboyant would reply "Sellout!" or "Go 
back to your closet!" 

Tom's not my roommate anymore, he moved to L.A. and builds cool little 
machines out of outdated nuclear technology. In SF there evolved this 
sort of punk-oriented bike scene, people making bike actions and bike 
games and riding and drinking and carousing, and even doing politi- 
cal-type, anti-corporate environmental activities. As time has gone 
by, though, I noticed an increase in the usage of the above phrase. 
Once in the Mission, I was juggling a beer and tooling around at 22nd 
and Bryant when a sour-looking cyclist road up to me and said, "Get on 
the right side of the street! It's people like you who are RUINING IT 



I think, now wait a minute, the oil companies are sponsoring political 
murders in Nigeria, and environmental terrorism and brainwashing all 
over the globe, and some goody two shoes cyclist thinks a drunk punk 
aimlessly trolling a near-empty intersection in the Mission is RUIN- 
ING IT? That little incident, repeated hundreds of times, signalled 
splintering and infighting amongst those who have the energy for that 
kind of thing, and the rest of us have just gone about our business. 
This phrase is a symptom, like hives or night sweats, of an insecure, 
defensive and self -abnegating mentality. Whenever it's used , it's 
used to put down people who have TOO MUCH IN COMMON. It specifies that 

the RUINER is also one of US. 

I'm sure you've noticed it in the punk scene. You may even have said 
it to someone. Someone said it to me, for graffiti. A punk telling 
another punk YOU"RE RUINING IT over graffiti? I have always consid- 
ered graffitti to be one of the Articles of Confederation of punkdom. 
If we can't do graffitti, at least, are we really punks anymore? You 
know, there comes a time for many people when they DO want to quit 
being a punk. There's no shame in that, I guess. But you can't have it 
both ways. You can't quit being a punk, then go around in punk's 
clothing telling other people they're wrecking the scene. 
When punks have to attack their friends to protect their scene, then 
its TOO LATE I The enemy is already within.

IGGY: So vou guvs started playing in 1980? 

MIKE: So. it was 1978. My brother had this basement— it was like the only one in Florida, up 

bv che Broward/Dade line... 

Why'd you guys stBtt 

Why'd you guys scare playing? Were you guys punk rockwers? 

No. There were no punk rockers. My brother and Cotcie were 

in councrv cover bands. 

Back i 
1972. They all meC when Eddie and Cotcie boch answered Che same ad in che music paper. It was 
with this guy who was a roadie for che Jefferson Airplane. He wrote rock operas, and thought 
he was real brilliant. 
I: You mean, he did aloe of drugs. 

H: Yeah. He did codeine and wrote rock operas. I was only 15, so I was cheir little roadie. 
Their first gig was in the cripple ward ac Jackson Memorial Hospical! They did BYRDS covers, 
Jefferson Airplane... a couple of the guy's little rock operas. This was in 19.3. 
I: uh. . . That's when we were born. 

M: So they're plaving and its all chese cripples in bed* burn victims and shit. They ?^ c 

horrible. Horrible! Buc che doctor casus up and cold them that this was really che best kind 

cherapy for these people. 

I: Would you say vour audiences todav arte similarly crippled? 

M- well .". We've seen some prettv strange shit looking off that stage over the years... 

Anyways! they kept playing through the 70' s as a cover band. Eventually, Cortie went on tjur 

with David Alan Coe... 

I: The cocaine snorting, fighting freak 1 

»: Yeah, he did coke with George Jones... Anyways, 1 took over on drums. We played T 

CHEAP TRICK. ROXY MUSIC... We were called The Fire Ants for awhile, but one day we 

around practice talking, ind I was saying "Well, We eat. It Eats. Everything eats 

became The Eac . , . 

I: uh... that's pretty heavy, man. "Everything eats"... And what kind of drugs were 

M: Mostly just marijauna with i few other chemicals... 

So. Cottie got kicked off the David Alan Coe tour when ne broke his foot 

imi. Our guitarist quit, so I went to guitar, and Cottie joined up. That's when we decide 
play originals. We wrote "Dr. TV", "C atholic Lov e". 


ere sit : : 
So, We 

came back Co 





THE EAT "&CfrAJ/c u ! 

I: Did you guys Listen to punk? 

M: Yeah, by then we listened Co Raraones, New York Dolls.... It was a natural 

from che glicter shit. We made a conscious decision: "Let's go punk." 

I: So you didn't have red hair, or a mohawk, or anything? 

M: No. There was no punk. I was 21 years old when I just "went punk." 

The whole punk scene was THE CICHLIBS who were like power pop with a few covers. THE POLICE 

played in 1978. Thac was where aloe of Che people who became punks later met. Suddenly, it 

all just exploded In 19"9, but it was dangerous, bee »use people were real threatened by it. 

Ther o was always peop e who came to shows jusc to fuck with vou rednecks, and shit.

I: Wait, this is getting dull. Did you guys ever kill anybody, or what ... 

M: Well, we did drop a cinder block on this guys head once while we were playing 

asshole. He was very surprised, because most people don't expect musicians' to drop cinder 

blocks on them. 

I: Was he a na=i, or something? 

M: We could have been the nazis... We were a mean ass group. 

■j: Sue weren't there more mean people around? 

H: Yeah, evervone wis pissed off cuz they thought we were crying to destroy music as t: 

knew it... We'd get this sneering criticism in The Miami Herald. We got in the Herald tor 

plaving a "Punk meets Disco" party in the Grove somewhere. The disco people unplugged us 

the first song, "Jimmy B. Goode", which we always opened with! So, the guy from Mouth ot t 

Rac fanzine, .David Parsons, took a picture off the wall and soashed it and the glass frame 

He was a re

M: Wow, Our 2nd show was there with THE CtCHLIDS in '79. We were OK. But when THE CICHLLDS

The I.N.S. Building is right by my house 

It is, somewhat ironically, 1 

think, located only a couple blocks from the huge, old watertower, by the 
railroad tracks that says, "WELCOME TO MIAMI", real big on it. 

For weeks, the lines out front of the building had been getting longer arte 
longer. Riding my bike home at 4:00 AH, I'd see the first handful of families 
gathering outside, pacing ana waiting for the building to open, with envelopes 
and papers in hand. The whole city was in a panic, because of two new laws that 
were going into effect on the first of the month. One, a new welfare reform 1 a« 
would deny benefits even to legal immigrants. The other was a new, tougher 

immigration law that made citizenship narder to attaii 

and could, depending on 

how it was enforced, cause whole families to be deported, even if they hac ;oas 

and had been in the country 

• o r 


Al I 

>er Miami, people were lining up at 

• elfare offices to find out their welfare status. Many others were arranging 
last minute marriages to U.S. citizens. The IKS hac to issue a statement sa/ing 
tnat marriage wouldn't effect status under the new law. 

No one seemed to be able to say, for sure, what the new law would change. 
and every one was afraid. An elderly Cuban immigrant with AIDS, quite blea>1j 
summed up the city's mood when he made front page news by ci mm it ting suicide, arc 
leaving a note saying that he would have had no way to survive without his 
monthl y SSI check . 

Obviously, having a signifigant portion of the city's people suddenly lose 
their income and having businesses sudaenly lose their employees to deportation, 
was a huge economic time bomb for Miami. But what was worse, 1 felt, was tit- 
lines, themselves. Long lines of ten-ifiec people facing casual, bureaucri-. t e 
cruelty, in public. It was making my city a grimmer, more unlivable place to 
How many fucking hoops does someone have to jump through, anyways, before the 
government will say, "OK, you're a real person, now"? 

On the last night before the law went into effect, I was ricing by at 2 : C 
AM. and there were already 150-200 people there! Whole families with lawnchairs 
and blankets, out on 79th street. ! «as riaing along, feeling sort-of disgust e o 
that all I could do was think. "Duh. What a fucked up situation..." I wished 
ther was something I had to offer them, or some way to let them know that not 
everyone here wants them to leave. 

Thinking of lines made me think of free food. Then, I thought, well, what 
if, while waiting six hours through the night at 79th and 3iscayne, with all tie 
rats, drug dealers, prostitutes, and cops, the people had some food offereed 
to them? I saw a couple people in line with Duns in' Do nuts cups, and then I 
realized that Dunkin' Donuts was only a couple blocks away, ana tnis was ngnt 
about the time of night that they'd be throwing out the day old donuts. It see~ec| 
like it'd be pretty eat/ to convince the 0.0. crew to just give them to me . 
instead, ana then I could bring them over to the line for anyone who wanted then 

The Haitian girl who works the night snift at Qunkin' Donuts there i pretty 
nice. She's given me free donuts aefore. I told her about the nuge line, and 
said I wanted to take the day old donuts over there. I was pretty sure ;ne 
understooc what I meant, but she doesn't speak English that well. I tola ner 
I wantea them in Dunkin" Donuts bags, and she said, "OK, go out sack ana wait, 
before the boss comes back." 

Out back. I waited awhile. Finally, the back door opened and this white 
cuy, with a buzz cut comes out with a garbage bag, full of the donuts. Wait' A 
garbage bag ?!? Before I knew it, he was swinging the bag over his heaa, so tnat 
he could throw it over the fence, into the dumpster. I yellec, "Hey 1 You don't 
nave to do that: You can just give them to me."

This has been a novel about some people who were punished 
entirely too much for what they did. They wanted to have a 
good time, but they were like children playing in the street; 
they could see one after another of them being killed — run 
over, maimed, destroyed — but they continued to play any- 
how. We really all were very happy for a while, sitting around 
not toiling but just bullshitting and playing, but it was for 
such a terrible brief time, and then the punishment was be- 
yond belief: even when we could see it, we could not believe 
it. For example, while I was writing this I learned that the 
person on whom the character Jerry Fabin is based killed 
himself. My friend on whom I based the character Ernie 
Luckman died before I began the novel. For a white I myself 
was one of these children playing in the street; I was, like 
the rest of them, trying to play instead of being grown up, 
and I was punished. I am on the list below, which is a list of 
those to whom this navel is dedicated, and what became of

We weren't really all that slick though, and we couldn't quite get the hang of 
our Greenpeace gear. Once the cops figured out that we weren't chained 
together as permanently as we said we were, they just pulled us apart. "Hey, { 

lan, that hurts!" I said. "It's gonna hurt - it's called a pain pry", repliea 
the cop, smiling for the first time. Oh. Still, they had to call the fire 
department with the Jaws of Life or whatever in case they needed to cut the 
stuff off of us, and the chaos lasted for several hours. We watched station 
wagons full of little kids with their faces pressed to the glass start to 
drive in, and then turn around in a near panic when they saw the scene we 
created. Hi kids! Free Tibet - torture isn't splendid! 

A few months ago, eight Tibetans went on a hunger strike in front of the 
United Nations - pledging to go until death if necessary. You would laugh if 
you heard how little they were willing to die for, but it's still much more 
than the UN offered. If it wasn't for the intervention of the Dalai Lama to 
end the strike on the 13th day, I have little doubt that there would've been 
dozens of deaths by now. There was a whole list of Tibetans who were ready to 
takethe place of anyone who died, to make sure the hunger strike could

Finding suitable planes was never a problem for drug smugglers. There 
were thousands of planes sitting around Florida's airports that one could 
buy. lease, borrow, or steal for a quick run to Colombia. "Back in the 
earlv eighties." one airport manager told me, "most of the dopers used 
cheap thro wa way planes. You could find them anywhere, and get them 
fixed up enough to make a run or two.

In the early days of pot smuggling, the smugglers had a good image as good. 
old boys with boats, or planes, who were just out having fun, and trying to make 
a cood'livinc, by beating the cops and bringing in something that everyone 
wanted anyways. On the Labor Day, 1977, Jerry Lewis Muscular Dystrophy Telthcn 
even, two mysterious, bearded guys appeared, on live TV, donating S 1 , i *f £* SK 
"for the kids, from the Blockade Runners."! Later, when the risk of smuggling 
increasec, with greater coast guard presence, many smugglers switched to th 
more valuable Cocaine. Much more money could be made with the 
of cocaine. This led to the gun battles in mall parking lots, 
violence that M i a m i a n s have come to know so well. What's with 
lot thing anywav? 1 wonder if they all started meeting in mall 
before, or AFTER, MIA M I VICE ? 

Drue planes landed everywhere. Smugglers would pay farmers, upstate, to 
them lane on their farm, and pay a local sheriff 55 0,000 to just stand there 
make sure nothing went wrong. Before the stretch of I -95, between Ft. Pierce 
Cocoa was completec, planes would use the paved part as a night time runway. 

Boats could make it in, anywhere, too. One Ft. Laucerdale operation bo.

the back door! Then, they'd hire elderly couples in winnebagos to crive the 
north, out of Florida, and they'd hire Krishnas to watch the stuff, became

With all this cash around, the Miami Police decided they wanted a cut, * 
In the early 'BO's. the force was ordered to comply with new affirmative actior 
laws, and to have all officers live within the city limits of Miami. Since the 
cops were overwhelmingly white, and lived in the 'burbs, there was a frantic 
sver amble to fine new cops, and almost anyone was hired, whether they pasie: 
all the tests, or not. For a couple years, the city was plagued by these new cops 
w ho would take bribes, steal evidence, and even do stuff like pick up prostitutes 
and use their badge to get a free hotel room! Then, the "Miami River Cops", came 
along. They would work together to stake out and catch drug dealers, so that they 
could seize the drug shipments and sell them themselves! Yo! They 
get their name on the same night, when they raided a freighter on

but. w h a tab out the case of Everglaces City? In 1933, federal agaents 
blockaded the two roads into the tiny town on the west coast of Florida, and raide 
it, arresting 193 of the town's 6 CO residents, f or d r uc tr a f f i c k i nc charges ! The 
capers across the country called it the "Town gone bad", but everyone in town 
said they were just trying to find a new living with their knowledge of beats 
the Florida ccast, after the government announced a ban on commercial fishing 
the Everglaces. Fishing, and the already-banned alligator poaching were the 
town's livlyhood. The just-trying-to-make-a-living argument is the same one 
that one-armed smuggler, Harry Morgan, made, as the main character of Hemingway's 
Key West smuggling novel, TO HAVE A\0 HAVE NOT . 

The good, old boy smugglers have given way to Cartel-controlled, multi- 
national operations. Corporate smuggling still sucks! But, Florida's frontier- 
style attitude and contempt for Federal law proudly remain. As one of the agents 
who raided Everglades City said, "They ask why I'm down there bothering them.

and check into the Holiday Inn out on Route 27. They'd leave their cars 
/ in the parking lot * ith a spare set of keys for each one. The ground crew 
would pick up the cars that evening and drive out k> a place near the held

Afier the coke arrived they would load the duffel bags into the cars* trunks 
and drive them back to the motel. Then they'd call the Colombians from) 
a nearby restaurant to say the shipment had arrived. The following mom-' 
ing the Colombians would get in their cars and take off with the coke. 
The two groups never met."
